TROY, MO (KTVI) – A suspicious package was discovered Saturday morning at the Bodine Aluminum plant in Troy, MO.  According to Lincoln County Fire Chief Mike Cherry, two hundred employees were evacuated from the plant after a wrapped package was found in the men’s locker room along with a handwritten note that said “explosives.”

Troy Police, Lincoln County Fire, and Lincoln County Paramedics arrived on scene.  The St. Charles County Bomb Squad was called in to investigate and they were able to mitigate the threat.

Chief Cherry could not say what was found inside the wrapped bundle, but all employees were sent back to work. No one was injured.
